Just look at the play clock.
I guess to me that's like saying that everybody has to run lines except player X, because he's better than the rest.
Doesn't do much for team cohesion. And if he's doing it on the recruiting trail and before they ever step foot on campus, what's going to happen when it's a key player who gets into trouble?
Sorry - to each their own. But I don't like it one bit and hope it's more of the aforementioned "they already had visits scheduled" reasoning.
I'd put it more into the category of "Where does the 500 lb gorilla play?" Answer? Anywhere he wants to.
Seriously. There's a difference between if a player says, "I commit", then up and goes on another visit, and one that says "I commit", then has the respect to call GC and talk it over first. I'm not going to speculate as to what the content of that conversation might involve, but I have a strange feeling that this is one instance where asking forgiveness isn't easier than asking permission. :wink:
On the check with me thing, I was really waiting for the Clones to sometime just go up to the line and go on a quick count, and catch the other team off guard, waiting for the check.
